L Local Authority v T (Flight to Ireland)

Child – Care. A local authority was concerned for the safety of five children and had been granted an interim care order in respect of them. The father had taken the children to Ireland and had not returned , as required by the order. The Family Court, in proceedings to reconsider the interim care order, held that the test for the removal of children from the family to foster care was no longer met. With the precautions in place in Ireland, it was neither necessary nor proportionate for the children to be removed.
